Gillingham maintained their unbeaten start to the League One season by coming from behind to beat Bradford City at Valley Parade.

Bradford took the lead when a low cross from Billy Knott found James Hanson unmarked and he tapped the ball into the net from six yards.

Gillingham levelled when Luke Norris beat Ben Williams from 25 yards.

The winner came when Adedeji Oshilaja's header appeared to take a deflection off Hanson before it went into the net.
